[News] 2PM Nichkhun returns from Thailand after attending a successful premiere of his debut film ‘Seven Something’
According to JYP Entertainment, Nichkhun has recently returned from Thailand after attending the premiere for his first ever film.
The agency went on to express, “Nichkhun left Korea on the 19th for the promotion of his movie and has returned after a successful press conference and premiere, thanks to all of the support he received.”
The film, ‘Seven Something‘, which garnered much interest for being Nickhun’s debut project, is said to have been produced as a celebratory motion picture for the 7th anniversary of the production company ’GTH‘. The film company is well known in Korea for their movies such as ‘Phobia 2‘, ‘Hello Stranger‘, and ‘Bangkok Traffic Love Story‘.
Directed by three directors, the film’s storyline plays off the idea that human beings experience a transformation every seven years. Furthermore, the movie will draw out its story about love and life in a three part omnibus format. Nichkhun plays the protagonist in the third episode, ‘42.195‘, in which he introduces love and meaning into the life of female lead, ‘Sukwan”. It was also added that Nichkhun exhibited veteran-like acting skills despite being a newcomer.
An estimated 200 reporters showered the press conference with questions and camera flashes, whereas nearly 300 reporters were present for the red carpet and stage greeting. 2,000 fans were also present for the latter events.
The premiere event in particular was a large scale event with 1,000 people in attendance including representatives from JYPE, the central media, and local officials, confirming the anticipation surrounding Nichkhun and the upcoming release of the film on the 26th.
Nichkhun spoke up during the event saying, “I’m so glad to be able to attend the premiere of my first movie as an actor. It’s a new experience. I think this movie will always have a place in my heart because I had a great time filming it. I want to thank all those who helped me and waited for me.”
Nichkhun returned to Korea earlier today after successfully finishing up promotions for the movie in Thailand.
